But I saw another bug that I hadn't noticed before.
Yep, it's a ladybug larvae - and I saw lots of them. You wonderful gardeners out there are chuckling at my obtuseness, but now I know those are what I want to see in the garden!
And today I saw several of the next phase in the ladybug life cycle: the pupa. Soon another generation of ladybugs will be helping me keep my roses healthy!
